Welcome Spring!

I am ready for spring!  Planted my first flowers today. 

I also added a tiny owl and turtle to the garden. Keira has to go outside and pet them multiple times per day. 

The bulbs from the fall are blooming!  Just waiting for the tulips now!

I am obsessed with my yard. Who would have guessed?  Gardening isn't really my thing...or at least it didn't used to be. 

I bought these adadorable ground covers and can't wait to plant them but I have to wait a few more weeks. I also bought some summer bulbs to plant - I am so excited.

And I decided to bring a bit of the outdoors in - tulips in a mason jar?!  Yes Please. This fall I want to get a bunch of bulbs to force so I can have fresh flowers all year.

Chase looks adorable in his new shades. 

And look at my fun new piercings!

My first Birchbox came today and the packing was adorable!

I am excited to try the moisturizer and the lip stick and glitter gel are kind of fun. I am not sure if I will use the leave in conditioner or perfume but I may give them a whirl just to see. 

I think the sample sizes are fun and I liked the variety included. I would give this box an 8 out of 10.

Baby Locks

Lovin Keira's first ponytail!

If one is good two is better...

I never expected a light curly haired kiddo...

I recently decided to give a few subscription boxes a try and here is my March Wantables box.  It is the first box I received. 

This month included a camisole and PJ set. Honestly I was a little underwhelmed with the volume in the box and the estimated value of the box was $60 (which isn't that much more then the $40 it cost).  

But I wouldn't have picked either item out myself and since one of my goals was to try new things that is good.  Also both items fit which is good. 

I would rate this a 6 out of 10.

Best Friends

Stark is such a good dog...

Super snuggly and patient...

Even when he is being ridden like a pony...

Look!  My bulbs are blooming!  I can't wait to see what it looks like. We planted about 200 bulbs in the fall!

Keira has become addicted to playing outside. She is so funny.

Random Thoughts for the Day

Just a bunch of random things:
- I haven't been loving work lately so this morning I bought a Powerball ticket. $450 Million?  Yes please!
- B and I have been Tiny Home obsessed. It would be a perfect vacation home right?
- Being a parent is hard. Enough said.
- Part two of that is: weight loss sucks. Enough said.
- We are planning a beach vacation and I find my thoughts drifting to it regularly...
- The bulbs we planted in the fall are starting to bloom Wahoo
- I really want a fairy door and fairy garden!  So fun.
- I am pondering a DIY barn door for my laundry room.
- I hate booking summer camps #unneededstress
- The weather has been amazing I am ready for Spring

Off to wrangle children...

Catch Up

Life has been crazy busy lately...but here are a few recent pictures. 

Keira cracks me up when she colors. It is such a girl pose. 

Chase and I went to see Strange Magic. It was terrible. Maybe one of the worst movies I have ever seen but he had fun.

Chase is getting ready to test for his green belt in Karate. So proud of him. 

For my birthday this year we went to the Rio with friends. It ended up being a delightful night. I can't believe I am 33 eek!!

Sand Creek

This lovely little creek is just blocks from our house. Nothing like throwing rocks into a creek on a 70 degree day in January.
